Hipstering around

There is a saying “you are not a photographer, you are just a kid with a Nikon” used to ridicule the people who use a camera but not using their brains or learning anything. For some, it can be enlarged with “you are not even a kid with a Nikon, you are just a hipster”.

Why Wiki Loves Monuments?

I take part, and I am also an organizer, in the Romanian Wiki Loves Monuments photography contest, where we try to get people contributing photos of historical monuments to Wikipedia. The things are not all roses, photos below, taken in the old city of Bucharest, the most important touristic area from our capital city, are a proof of why something like it is badly needed. Our history, our culture, our identity, they are going away due to carelessness and/or greed. We can at least preserve their image.

Bucharest like Rio

B.FIT, the Bucharest International Theatre Festival, closed with a big parade, part of it was the parade of Latin dance schools, with samba, salsa, capoeira, bachata and more. There were some costumes making you think of Rio de Janeiro.

The hard life

Life may be hard next to a pregnant woman: after a copious lunch a small desert may be craved, but as everything looks so good, you have to chance to end-up with double the quantity (here 4 cakes for 2 people). And since she can’t eat it all, you will have to be the hero and take care of more than half of it. Is more fun when you are an appreciator who can’t pass a good dessert.
